The Soul body is the threefold principle of creative imagination, receptivity and feeling perception and holds the recorded memories of the Consciousness. The Soul acts as the repository of accumulated memories from the physical or external experiences that are translated into the internal energetic reality of the consciousness of being. These many lifetimes of experiences are recorded into the soul body which translates into memories that are embedded in the cellular matrix of our body.
Without the Soul body whole or connected, all of these functions will either become distorted or non-existent, as qualities of experience and blocked memories inside the body. The Soul is the higher sensory body, which allows higher emotional states and feelings to be experienced, along with continually developing sensory abilities. The Soul allows our heart to deeply feel the Love of God as a unifying force. It acts as the bridge between the Soul and Monad body that is united with the Inner Holy Spirit, when ignited in the Higher Heart (thymus area).
The Soul Matrix is the first spiritual triad of when a human being starts to connect and integrate the soul body energies and heart complex during the first stages of the process of spiritual awakening or spiritual Ascension. The entire soul body is made of three layers that interact together into a Horizontal Triad Body. Each of these layers, 4D, 5D and 6D correlate to the same Chakra, its colored wave spectrum and a dimension of time and space in the future.
In 2008 a Guardian planetary repair project was healing the distorted timelines and damage in the 4th dimensional Astral Plane and its related impact to the 4th strand of DNA within the divine human body template. The Astral Plane is severely damaged with Phantom Matrix, Dead Energy and Miasma, Planetary.
The 4th layer of the human body Chakra system houses the first level of the divinity, the soul matrix and heart intelligence.
The 4th layer of the human Lightbody is impacted by the 4th layer of the planetary lightbody also called the Astral dimensional plane. The 4th Dimensional Planetary Stargate leads us into the Astral plane layers and is positioned at Giza in Egypt. 
Universal Ascension Model
In our Ascension model we recognize and work with 15 Waves of Spectrum of Frequency that correlate directly with the Universal Rays (See the Universal Time Matrix) and our individual Chakra systems. The first nine layers of the Spectrum of Frequency or Kundalini include levels of particle currents that make up the matter worlds. Above nine dimensions are the anti-particle dimensions which are blueprint forms of liquid plasma light or hydroplasmic currents.The amount of energy stored in the Kundalini is the capacity of the genetic code to hold energy. The Soul energies that cannot integrate into the DNA will be stored in the Kundalini center at the base of the spine.
Astral is 4th Layer of Soul Body
The entire soul body is made of three layers that interact together. Each of these layers, 4D, 5D and 6D correlate to the same referenced Chakra energy center, its colored wave spectrum and a dimension of time and space in the future. These three layers can be seen in the 12 Tree Grid graphic as in the soul dimension and are related to the 5th dimensional timelines on the future planet earth. The Astral Plane is the 4th dimension and the first layer of the triad of the Soul Matrix. For more detail see the Universal Time Matrix.
Astral Heart Manipulation
When one has control over the thoughts of one’s mind, one has control over the direction and actions of the physical body, all of its parts and reclaiming of the soul energies. Whoever controls the Mind controls the Soul. Most NAA Mind Control is manipulated in the Astral Plane and this Alien Machinery has damaged humanities Astral Heart and 4th Chakra, thus blocking our true heart purpose which is to express the soul through the heart center. When the 4th Chakra is blocked it accumulates aberrant emotional energies in the 2nd Chakra creating trauma, Soul Fragmentation and Addiction problems. These blockages disrupt the Soul and Monadic integration in the body and consciousness, manifesting many disease states or mental body pathologies.
The Spirit body of the Monad is only consciously aware of the contents of the Soul when it is connected to the Soul. This is the same as when the physical body is disconnected from the Soul, the conscious mind does not remember her (cannot feel the soul). When the Spirit body is disconnected from the Soul, the spirit consciousness can no longer remember the Soul, and becomes unconscious of the Souls memory of existence. This unconsciousness has the impact of Soul Fragmentation. How this manifests in the First World, the lowest plane on earth, is Insanity, schizophrenia, catatonia, psychotic break, and all other forms of split consciousness. How this manifests in the Second world is chaotic dream states of astral delusions, holographic bits of fragmented pictures of millions of storylines. These pictures intersect without coherence or cohesion, just jumbled messages of dreamy, disconnected fantasy images and impressions. This manifests in the Third World in much the same way as an anesthetic puts the consciousness to sleep, similar to hypnotic like trance or sleepwalking. When the Consciousness layers are split apart, it results in a sleepwalking or amnesiac type trance in all Three Worlds. Conversely, when we awaken our consciousness and start to desire communication with our Soul and Spirit, this starts the awakening process in all Three Worlds. 
Soul Split in Underworld
When aspects of the Soul fragment and sink into the lowest layers of perception, they enter a danger zone. Some of these distorted aspects are from our fallen history and the astral body damage that ensued with the 2D/4D Split. The 2D-schism split the instinctual body into separate functions, creating a collection of fragmented astral sub-personalities and a repository for collective chaotic forces. The 4D-schism placed a barrier that separates the astral body/heart chakra from merging with the 3D Solar Plexus mental body. This created a Soul Split that subjects the person to underworld energies and lower astral traveling.When the Soul is separated from its higher spirit body and continually sinks into the lowest dimension, it will merge at the areas where the personal and collective unconsciousness start to flow together. When this merge with collective unconscious occurs, dark, chaotic, shadow bodies start to emerge and multiply. The Soul aspect enters the realm of the Underworlds, which are the spheres of collective unconsciousness. This is the chaotic realm of demonic hierarchies, animalistic, vulgar and grotesque creations. If this soul-spirit consciousness split remains at the death of the body, the human being enters this Underworld of darkness and demonism.
